Conn. seminar to cover pressure-washing requirements

The Connecticut Marine Trades Association is hosting an environmental seminar at 5:30 p.m. Aug. 18 in Branford, Conn.

The purpose of the seminar is to discuss the bottom pressure-washing requirement and agreement for Connecticut, and the recently rewritten general permit for the discharge of storm water.

CMTA has developed a memo of understanding/consent form with the state Department of Environmental Protection to handle the pressure/power wash waste water issue, but it includes certain benchmark dates, which will be discussed at the seminar.

The association has invested more than $50,000 in legal fees to ensure that rewriting the general permit for discharging storm water did not deliver a fatal blow to the recreational marine industry, association officials said. The application of the permit is broader, the requirements for testing have changed, the testing is more frequent, and yet it may be less expensive for the facility with the new permit.

The cost of attending is $20 for CMTA members and $50 for non-members.
